Ecstatic humpback whale freed from net (video)

Michael Fishbach, the head of a whale conservancy found what they thought was a dead humpback whale, but it was only hopeless tangled in a fishing net.

So, Fishbach and friends proceeded to attempt to cut the whale free. And after a while, they succeeded, and boy did the whale then give them a show.


It’s a great video, and amazing how lung the whale went on, jumping out of the water. Start watching the video about 4 minutes and 27 seconds in.

Oh, and posting will be light until Monday, when we’ll be back to full strength.  I decided it was finally time to treat a holiday as a, well holiday :)
